Apocalypse: Vial VII, Earthquake -- Flying angel pours contents of vial onto ground. Below, buildings and towers of city are burning and falling to ground. Flames and hail fall from dark cloud toward woman and five men, nude. The woman, with joined hands, looks up toward God, as half-figure, wearing cross-surmounted (?) tiara, extending right hand in blessing, holding globe with left hand, emerging from cloud hovering in portal of church (?). Illustration of Revelation 16:17-21.
